Djon Africa

Filipa Reis

João Miller Guerra

Fiction / HD / 96' / 2018

Miguel Moreira, also known as Tibars, also known as Djon África, learns that genetics can be cruel when his physiognomy – as well as some of his strong personality traits – denounce him, straightaway, as his father’s son; someone he has never known. This intriguing discovery leads him to try to find out who this man is. All he knows about him is what his grandmother, with whom he has always lived, has told him.

With Miguel Moreira and Isabel Cardoso Directing Filipa Reis and João Miller Guerra Script Pedro Pinho​, João Miller Guerra Cinematography Vasco Viana Sound Ruben Santigo Editing Eduardo Serrano, Ricardo Pretti e Luisa Homem Colorist Jenny Mendes Sound Editing and Mix Branko Neskov
